New Pensacola Reclamation Plant to Use MIOX Disinfection
Baskerville-Donovan, Inc. has selected MIOX Corp. of Albuquerque, N.M., to supply five RIO Series on-site sodium hypochlorite generators for the final disinfection phase at the Emerald Coast Utilities Authority's (ECUA) new Central Water Reclamation Facility (CWRF) in Pensacola, Fla., according to a July 18 press release.
Each RIO unit has a 500-pound-per-day capacity and will treat 20 million gallons of wastewater per day. The new treatment facility, expected to be complete in 2010, will replace the Main Street Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The units will produce up to 20 million gallons of effluent per day, and the disinfected water will be reused by Gulf Power's Crist Plant.
The RIO generates a 0.8 percent sodium hypochlorite solution onsite and on demand by combining salt, water, and electricity.
